Temasek hires BoAML high-flyer

Singaporean investment group Temasek has hired Gregory Curl a former top executive at Bank of America Merrill Lynch to oversee its holdings in the US. Curl retired from the bank in March but was respected for his work on its investments in China. He is one of several high profile hires in recent months as the group reshuffles staff in the wake of its unsuccessful attempt to appoint its first foreign boss last year. Former BHP Billiton head Charles Goodyear left after disagreements over strategy.
